What is Happening?
"Wait! Stop!" she shouts.
I am scared. What had he done? I stand in the cold wind watching my breath form small wispy clouds. I hear a distant scream and run quickly, trying not to slip on the icy sidewalk.
"Oh! Ahhh! Help!!
I shiver and feel a heaviness in the pit of my stomach. What is happening?
"No!" Silence. Then yells. I lean on the building trying to think this over. Chasing...screaming...was it a fight? I feel terrified. Do I really want to find out what this is? No! my brain shouts. Yes! my heart says, beating so loud, it feels like it's trying to leap out of my chest. I am horrified...worried...guilty. I should never have left home without telling someone.
I run back the way I came. I knock on a door loudly. A young man opens it.
"Eexxxcuuuse m-m-me," I stammer. "I saw...I heard..." How do I explain this, I wonder desperately.
"I'm sorry...goodbye," snaps the man as he slams the door.
I stand there, then run to the next house hoping someone will help.
